Confused about packages.

Hi ive just come over from pipex,and have just migrated to "plusnet broadband plus" 2mb £14.99 50:1 connection ratio.Is this a capped service as it does not say.It only says that the payg service is capped and the premier service is uncapped,it says that on the plus service surfing and email are given priority at peak times if any body has the time to explain it would be great.

Ive came from a 512kbps 50:1 ratio service from pipex,will I see a ping difference in counter strike?I hope so going up to 2 mb.

thanks up front for any help!

Ryan.

Confused about packages.

your account is not capped. There was a big debate about this awhile ago (search back in these forums, for some lengthy rows).

What happens is at peak times certain protocols, like P2P (file sharing) will have their speed deprioritised for other protocols, like http (web). It means at busy times, your downloads might slow down while everything is normal.
